That *is* chloramine. Use "Amquel," "Prime," or "Ammo Lock 2" to treat 
your water. They tie up the ammonium until your plants or biofilter can 
use it. Don't use hypo (sodium thiosulfate) compounds (dechlorinators 
that claim to "break the ammonium-chlorine bond").
What about a 10% or so water change? Is the ammount of ammonium released 
harmful? I never notice any distress in my fish, is the ammonium difused until the 
plants can utilize it?
